Safe Schools Healthy Students


The Middle Georgia Safe Schools/Health Students Initiative supports and strengthens the relationship of the County Boards of Education in Bleckley, Johnson, Tattnall and Telfair Counties with local law enforcement, public mental health, and juvenile justice agencies, and other community partners, as they work to enhance existing resources and integrate SS/HS project activities into a coordinated and comprehensive plan that reflect the local community collaboratives’ vision of creating safe school environments, promoting healthy childhood development, and preventing youth violence and alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use.

Examples of programs sponsored by the SS/HS initiative are:

– Too Good for Drugs and Violence

– Second Step

– Olweus Bullying Prevention

– Ripple Effects
